Winner’s Best Practice

My best practices? Here are a few of the tricks I embrace. Cheer all days and with energy. Give trust to everyone around you and empower them fully with every endeavor they want to take... the sky is the limit. Deeply focus on the people and seek first to understand their problems to look collectively at solutions. And treat them as they are… as adults! Acknowledge achievements everywhere. Look out constructively to match everyone’s talents at best. Stay away from judging and move on to learning. And last, give it some time before rushing to solutions!
